Three bottles of Awesome Aligoté 

Long thought of a bit of a workhorse grape in Burgundy, traditionally producing such poor quality wine that it was blended with cassis to make the Kir Aperetif. Winemakers are now slowly realising what you can achieve with the grape if you keep the yields low, and really take care producing the wine, so much so that top-producer Aligote has now become sought-after in the wine world. It's fair to say Aligote is having a bit of a moment right now, so we've got together three of our favourite Bourgogne Aligoté, showcasing the best of this lately venerable variety.

The wines below would pair perfectly with a deliciously simple lunch of goat's cheese, charcuterie and fresh tomato salad.

2020 Smith-Chapel 

22.00 > 19.80

Domaine Smith Chapel are a husband and wife team based in Beaujolais. We already stock their Fleurie, which is a must-try, and we fell instantly in love with this when we tasted it. It’s so alive and charming on the nose, there’s zesty citrus fruit, and a real saline quality that just makes it incredibly moreish and hard to put down!

2018 Bernard Moreau

22.00 > 19.80

Bernard Moreau are based in Chassagne-Montrachet and produce some of the world’s finest white Burgundies - their 1er cru Chassagnes can go for upwards of three figures. Here they produce a wonderful rendition of Aligote. It reminds me of Chablis, very crisp, elegant, and stony. There’s lovely zesty fruit and enough texture to keep it interesting.

2018 Goisot

19.00 > 17.10

We've had Goisot on 'by the glass' at the bar for a while now and its been extremely popular for good reason. The 2018 is showing so well at the moment, it's a little richer than the other two -  think Pear skins, fresh almonds and jasmine. It's lovely and creamy with the trademark freshness of Aligote coming through on the finish.

  • Great service and excellent wines

    Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.

  • Super-speedy delivery

    Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.

  • I placed my order online from…Melbourne

    I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars

  • Nice wine. Easy and efficient

    Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
